Daegu and Area IV: A Great Place to Live and Work

This video highlights what life is like being stationed at U.S. Army Garrison Daegu in the Republic of Korea. USAG Daegu residents experience the best of both worlds—a small town, close knit community on base and a big city full of excitement and entertainment right outside the gates.

USAG Daegu has the largest footprint in South Korea, encompassing almost half of the country. As an enduring hub on the peninsula, we also provide support to the U.S. Navy at Commander Fleet Activities Chinhae and the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp Mujuk in Pohang.

USAG Daegu, an Army Community of Excellence Award winner, is a wonderful place to live and work. Our workforce is dynamic, always making a difference in an energetic community.

Headquartered in Daegu, Republic of Korea, the 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command is the largest forward-deployed multi-component ESC in the U.S. Army. 19th ESC provides Operational Sustainment and Mission Command of sustainment operations for 8th U.S. Army. On order, 19th ESC executes Non-Combatant Evacuation Operations (NEO), Combined/Joint Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration (RSO&I), provides support to Joint Forces and is prepared to provide mutual support to coalition forces.

The 19th ESC commander serves as the senior officer responsible for Area IV, which is the southern hub for sustainment and power projection on the peninsula. The ESC consists of approximately 5,600 assigned personnel spread across the Korean theater of operations. Collectively, the 19th ESC comprises a team of professionals to support all U.S. troops stationed in the Republic of Korea.

By working with multiple strategic partners, the 19th ESC integrates and synchronizes strategic sustainment capabilities with operational and tactical requirements throughout the peninsula. These partners include the Army Materiel Command's 403rd Army Field Support Brigade, the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command's 837th Transportation Battalion, the Defense Contract Management Agency-Korea, the 411th Contracting Support Brigade, the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Center-Korea, DLA Energy, and DLA Distribution.

Another unique and critical part of the 19th ESC mission is the combined nature of all of its operations in Korea. By closely working with ROK Army counterparts, to include the ROK 2nd Operational Command, the ROK Transportation Command, and the ROK Logistics Command, the 19th ESC builds on the strong alliance between the United States and the ROK to improve effectiveness and efficiency in sustaining units throughout the Korean theater of operations.

In conjunction with its partners, 19th ESC manages the southern hub, which is the sustainment and power projection backbone for the peninsula. It works closely with the U.S. Army Garrison Daegu to improve installation capabilities and services that enable the sustainment mission and improve quality of life for Soldiers, civilians, and families who live in the area.

Additionally, the ESC's outreach efforts through community relations programs such as the Korean American Friendship Circle and the USFK Good Neighbor Program, combined with continued relationships with local governments, help promote partnerships and cultural understanding between 19th ESC and the surrounding communities.


The 19th General Support Command was activated in Seoul, Republic of Korea, July 15, 1964.

In 1972 the 19th General Support Command was relocated to Daegu as a part of the consolidation of Eighth Army Support and Depot Commands. The 19th remained part of the US Army Korea Support Command until that command was dissolved. The 19th then merged with the 23rd Support Group to form the 19th Support Brigade (Provisional).

In November 1974, the 19th became a non-divisional brigade.

In March 1977, the 19th was designated as the 19th Support Command.

On February 14, 1994 the 19th Support Command was re-designated the 19th Theater Army Area Command, headquartered in Daegu.

On June 16, 2000, the unit was re-designated the 19th Theater Support Command (Provisional).

On December 16, 2005 the unit was re-designated as the 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command.

19th ESC Insignia and Crest

The 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command's shoulder insignia features the outlined shape of the Rose of Sharon, the insignia is bordered in yellow and has a divided background of red and blue, taken from the central symbol of the Republic of Korea's flag. The insignia is proudly worn on the sleeves of all 19th ESC Soldiers from the sea to the DMZ.

The 19th ESC crest is set in gold. The blue and red colors symbolize support, while the keystone arch, from the Independence Gate in Seoul, signify the unit's activation and service in Korea. The blue contiguous stars denote the unit's organization under the COSTAR concept and the command and territorial controls in the assigned areas. The single flower, the Rose of Sharon and nine segments of the arch denote the command's numerical designation.

U.S. Army Materiel Support Command Korea


    MSC-K executes sustainment operations (maintenance and supply), mission command of subordinate organizations, and coordinates host nation enablers to support forces on the Korean Peninsula. On order executes Noncombatant Evacuation Operations, Combined/Joint Reception Staging Onward Movement and Integration C/JRSO(I) and Korean Service Corps mobilization to set conditions for contingency operations.

    MSC-K operates in 19 facilities across Camp Carroll. It is co-located with Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Distribution Korea and the Army Field Support Battalion-Northeast Asia, which manages Army pre-positioned stocks stored in the Pacific.

    MSC-K is organized into directorates and divisions and led by Department of the Army civilians and local national Korean employees. This organization gives the Eighth Army depot-level capabilities that enhance readiness while saving transportation costs and time. Using these facilities significantly reduces the average turnaround time for repairs and increases readiness for critical combat systems.


    Having a lineage dating back to May 1959 during the post-war period, Camp Carroll was redesignated as the United States Army Materiel Support Center-Korea as directed by UNC/USFK/8A Permanent Orders 65-3, effective December 1,1976 and later designated as U.S. Army Materiel Support Command-Korea (MSC-K) September 2, 2015.

    Since its inception, MSC-K’s organization, structure, and purpose have evolved to support the mission. Currently comprised of Soldiers, Department of the Army Civilians, Korean National employees, and Korean Service Corps paramilitary members, MSC-K stands today as one of the premier sustainment organizations on the peninsula.

    MSC-K is home to the Combat Power Generation Center, which has the Maintenance Directorate, Supply and Transportation Directorate, and the Busan Storage Center. MSC-K is also comprised of the 6th Ordnance Battalion which provides munitions support, the 25th Transportation Battalion which provides movement control, the 498th CSSB which provides flexible and responsive area logistics and personnel services support, and the KSC Battalion which provides embedded, multi-functional sustainment support.

    Working shoulder to shoulder as one team, DA Civilians, Korea Nationals, KSC paramilitaries, KATUSAs, Soldiers, and families of MSC-K truly represent the best of the ROK-U.S. Alliance and bring home what it means to be the home of …“The Winning Team.”

    The Korean Service Corps (KSC) Battalion executes daily mission command of 2,185 mission essential Korean Nationals in 18 companies augmenting on-peninsula US forces with embedded, multi-functional, sustainment support.


    The Civilian Transportation Corps was created March 15, 1951, consisting of civilians to provide logistics support to the defenders of the final defensive line of ROK and US Army troops along the Naktong (Nakdong) River during the Korean War. The CTC was re-organized as the Korean Service Corps on 14 Jul 1951 under direction of General James Van Fleet.

    Today the KSC Battalion, a flagged battalion commanded by an U.S. Army Lt. Col., which is assigned to the U.S. Army Materiel Support Command-Korea and the 19th Expeditionary Sustainment Command. Just as it did during the Korean War, the KSC Battalion will "bridge the gap" between current US capabilities and required wartime end strength by providing critical capabilities until U.S. reinforcement forces arrive in Korea.

    The Equal Opportunity (EO) program formulates, directs, and sustains a comprehensive effort to maximize human potential and to ensure fair treatment for all based solely on merit, fitness, and capability which all support readiness. EO is a responsibility of leadership and a function of command. This philosophy is based on fairness, justice, and equity. Commanders are responsible for sustaining a positive EO climate within their units.

    Specifically, the goals of the EO program are to:

    Provide EO for military personnel, civilians, and family members both on and off post and within the limits of the laws of localities, states, and host nations.

    Create and sustain effective units by eliminating discriminatory behaviors or practices that undermine teamwork, mutual respect, loyalty, and shared sacrifice of the men and women of America's Army.

    Additionally, in many circumstances, DA civilians may use the Equal Employment Opportunity complaint system. Army Regulation (AR) 690-600 provides further guidance.

    Contribute to mission accomplishment, cohesion, and readiness.

    Civilian employees of the Department of the Army (DA) may lodge complaints under this regulation that can result in an official investigation and possible disciplinary action against the Soldiers involved. They may also file discrimination complaints in accordance with AR 690-600: Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Discrimination Complaints. However, civilian employees who engage in discriminatory actions are not subject to discipline under AR 690-20: Army Command Policy, but are subject to the separate procedures of AR 690-600.

19th ESC Sexual Harassment/Assault Prevention & Response Program


Sexual assault has no place in the Army. Allegations of sexual assault must be investigated promptly and impartially and resolved expeditiously. Commanders and leaders at all levels are responsible for providing a safe and healthy environment for those in their charge. This responsibility requires leaders to take action to prevent sexual assault, protect and support victims, and hold offenders accountable by taking all appropriate administrative and judicial actions based on the facts and circumstances of each case.
